Response to Krytox on pellets or in the bore?

It seems like massive overkill. Pellets and barrels don't need much lubrication from a wear standpoint, it's mostly to prevent corrosion and keep the leading and other crud transfer to a minimum and keep what does transfer easily removed. Krtytox sticks to metals, stays there, and has good high load and high temperature characteristics for long term and heavy bearing loads, which is why it is great for springers. Assuming you lube every pellet, the barrel is getting lubed with every shot. To the extent it needs it, the lube is getting replaced with every shot. So, in theory, the cheapest plain ol' lubricating oil will do the job just fine. Heck, lead itself has decent lubricating properties, which is probably why lubing pellets is not a necessity.
